PeekABoo - Sitting, Thinking on a Step - and Other Poems About My Grandsons!

Updated on February 1, 2012

Sitting, Thinking on a Step

sitting, thinking on the step

watching the ants go by

wondering why they hurry so

watching the birds in the sky

sitting, thinking on the step

watching the puppies play

seeing the squirrel in the tree

on this wonderful bright day

sitting, thinking on the step

watching the cars go by

one will bring my daddy home

i think with a wishful sigh

***** ***** *****

Quiet Place To Hide

A quiet place to hide

Away from worried eyes

Away from all the questions

Away from all the cries

Sitting in the dark

Hiding from the stares

Keeping away from others

Knowing somebody cares

Hiding all alone

Away from all the noise

Tucked away where no one sees

Next to my most loved toys

***** ***** *****

A Papa's Love

My papa really loves me

No matter what I do

He always wants to hug me

And play some peek-a-boo

My Papa loves me so much

He likes to run and play

He also likes to hold me

He says I make his day

My Papa really loves me

He is my one best friend

He will love me no matter what

He will be with me ‘til the end

***** ***** *****


Watch out flying dragons

Sir Miles is here to fight

My sword by my side

To make all wrongs right

I’m here to save the dinosaurs

Yep, you heard what I said!

Dragons want to fight dinosaurs

At least under my bed

So watch out all you dragons

Stay away from my wild things

I don’t want to use my sword

To take off all your wings

Beware all you dragons

I know you are all affright

I will fight you more tomorrow

Mommy says I have to say goodnight!

***** ***** *****

      Grandchildren are so precious, I heard it said once that loving grandchildren are how grandparents earn their wings!

      The boy on the step is my oldest grandson - my daughter is an awesome photographer and takes great pictures. Since this grandson lives around 200 miles away it is nice that she does! Again - thank you for your kind comments.
